[CONCACAF OLYMPIC QUALIFYING]On Friday night, the USA beat the Dominican Republic by the football score of 14-0. On Sunday afternoon, it again put by two touchdowns but missed the extra point en route to a 13-0 win over Guatemala. And like Friday night when Amy Rodriguezcame off the bench to score five goals in the second half, Sydney Leroux  -- the object of chants of "Judas" from local fans for having switching from Canada to the USA -- scored five after coming on after intermission.

(Click here for highlights.)

Abby Wambach put the USA 2-0 up after a quarter of an hour and it was 6-0 after 34 minutes, the score at the half.

Making just her second international appearance, the Canadian-born Leroux scored in the 47th, 50th, 57th, 70th and 87th minutes to tie the U.S. women's record Rodriguez tied on Friday with four other players.

The USA closes out group play on Tuesday against Mexico. It will win Group B with a win or tie. Canada and Costa Rica currently sit 1-2 on goal difference in Group A.

    They won't be putting up those kind of numbers against Mexico.

    Exactly Robert... anyone I speak to, it's the first thing they say... "what happened to sportsmanship". I hear Pia was high fiving player even after the 12th and 13th goals.

    Pia needs to go when she keeps fielding Buehler, Boxx, Lloyd and A-Rod, time for a talented and more energetic new crop of players to come into the team and replace them.
